In this video we are going to talk about how you know that you are fat adapted or keto adapted. And what is the difference between ketosis and being fat-adapted. Im going to tell you about my personal experience about being on the keto diet for almost 3 months now. Being in ketosis means that you have between 0,5 to 3 level of blood ketones. You can be in ketosis but still not being fat adapted or keto adapted. If you fast for an extended time like you stop eating at 6 in the evening and you fast until the morning you will have a light for of ketosis, but it doesn't mean you are fat adapted. Fat adapted means that your body prefers using fat as the primary fuel source for the body. You can go back to eating carbs on a cheat day but then your body very fast will go back to burning fat again. There is a lot of co

5 Signs You Are Fat Adapted

“Fat-adaptation” is a somewhat vague term describing the profound changes that happen after switching from a standard diet to a ketogenic one. In order to experience these changes, you need to commit to consuming a very limited amount of carbohydrates (20-25 g per day or less) and to stick to that limit at least for a couple of weeks, while at the same time eating sufficient fat and protein. Once you commit to this way of eating you’ll notice some subtle, yet amazing transformations that your body will go through, in addition to the stable weight loss. If you are just starting out on this diet and this is your first week, you might also want to check these signs that you are in ketosis. In this article, we’ll shed some light on the different signs that you will notice once you start getting fat-adapted, and explain each one of them in detail. #1. Improved energy In the initial phase of the ketogenic diet (also sometimes referred to as induction phase), your body will be learning how to use fat for fuel instead of glucose. While at first, this might make you feel tired and lethargic, this will only last until your body adapts to the changes in your diet. Once you switch to a Continue reading >>

    How to know if you are in ketosis.

    Well i am sure there is another post like this, because i read it before, but i dont remeber exactly what it said and I cant find it.
    The quesiton is just as the title says, how can i know if i am in ketosis or not?
    I have been reading and the people says that at the second day, or thirth day or X day they get in to ketosis, but how they know that?
    Thanks

    If you have never been in Ketosis buy some keto sticks. You can pick them up at most drug stores in the US and Canada. Ask the pharmisist if you can't find them on the shelf. Usually they will be with diabetic supplies. Lots of people will say not to waist your money but they are cheap and I get an instant gratification when I see the test strip turn color. Besides, it is always nice to see evidence that your effort is paying off.
    -odd metalic taste in your mouth and bad breath.
    -Odd smelling urine is another symptom.
    -You will pee like a race horse.
    - I also get cotton mouth (dry mouth and really foamy saliva). Not sure if anyone else gets this.

When Do I Know If I’m In Ketosis?

Those on a Keto diet eat foods high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbs in order to get the process of Ketosis to kick into place. When Do I Know If I’m In Ketosis? Ketosis occurs when you stop burning carbs as fuel and you start burning ‘ketones’. Click here to read more about the process Ketosis. One of the major benefits of ketosis is that is helps us to burn fat and therefore lose weight. Unfortunately there is no red light which flashes to tell us that are our bodies are in Ketosis (wouldn’t this be handy). There are kits which you can supposedly purchase in the chemist which indicate if your body is in Ketosis, but how reliable these are I am not sure. The natural way to test is to look out for signs and symptoms which can give us clues: Bad Breath Acetone, a ketone that is found in our urine and breath is more prevalent on the Ketone Diet because the levels of it in our bodies are higher. It can be unpleasant and leave a nasty taste in your mouth which some describe to be fruity or a metal-like taste. Strong Smelling Urine Again, because the levels of acetone in your body are increased as above, it is likely that you will notice in increase in the smell of y Continue reading >>

Video: Signs You’re Fat Adapted

How to know your body is burning fat, without testing for ketones. And, the difference between fat adapted, ketones, and the ketogenic diet. The way I see it, becoming fat adapted means you have gained metabolic flexibility through a development of enzymatic processes which make it easy for your body to switch back to fat-burning after eating carbohydrates (this is especially important for those that practice carb ups). When you first begin eating ketogenic, your glycogen stores drain, and ketones begin to generate. In this first period of transition on the keto diet, your body doesn’t quite understand that fat has the potential to be your primary fuel. Your body will be creating ketones, and you’ll test positive for them, but your body won’t be fully fat adapted. Being fat adapted is state of pure fat-burning where your body has climatized to low-carb eating enough that it sees fat as its primary fuel source. This fat adaptation process can take two, three, sometimes four weeks to complete after beginning to eat keto. Being fat adapted is what we’re after and today, I’m sharing how to know when you’re fat adapted. Ideally, once fat adapted, this is the perfect time to Continue reading >>
